Event Info:  The Madrone
Champions Tournament serves a dual purpose, both to aid our Baron
& Baroness in selecting a new rapier champion (which they may
choose to do at a later time), and to help fund the new Monday
night practice.  Instead of our casual, regular practice, this
will be a fully garbed revel, including the presence of Baron
Stephan and Baroness Emelina.  Artisans & fighters alike
are encouraged to prepare and bring prize offerings which will be
awarded to the fancy of the top contenders of the
evening. 

 

Site Fee: NONE!
 Donations to support the Barony’s rental of the practice site
will be accepted at the door.

History behind the Title: In
early September 1513, King James of Scotland crossed the river
Tweed into England, burning the tillside castles of Ford & Etal
in an initial stroke of aggression encouraged by the French
queen.   He then took up headquarters at the castle of
the Heron family – with whom he had a feud – and rested
with the lady of the house for several days before reorganizing his
host for battle against the English response.  It is in this
prelude to the battle of Flodden– a time of border reivers,
muddled loyalties, and shameless looting – that we set our
event.
